1969 Mario Andretti Only Career Indianapolis 500 Victory Race Worn Fire Suit. The car he piloted to victory is at the Smithsonian Museum, and a replica on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame, leaving this historic fire suit as the most significant race-used relic to emerge from the legendary Andretti's sole Indy 500 victory. It was arguably the finest season of Andretti's career, as he claimed nine victories and the season Championship that year, as well as the honor of being chosen as ABC's Wide World of Sports Athlete of the Year.

    Film and photographic footage from the Brickyard perfectly matches the offered suit, which bears a local "Hinchman Indianapolis" label at interior collar. Sponsorship patches adorn chest, back and sleeves, with a strong concentration on lead sponsor "STP," and a distinctive embroidered "Mario Andretti" is scripted over the heart. Race wear is clearly evident, with various scuffs and stains recalling the dangerous and difficult work that made Andretti the sport's greatest star. Included is a letter of provenance from Andretti himself confirming wear during the 1960's, with photographic evidence assuring the most delectable vintage thereof. Letter of provenance from Mario Andretti. LOA from Heritage Auctions
